A Banner Day - Part 1 of a Blog Series

Hi Stampers!

I had the morning off because of a water main break at work, but that was kinda good since I wasn't feeling well last night & this morning.  So, I decided to break out my Simply Created Banners Kit & play.  I'm glad I did, because I initially had a little mishap - good to work those things out BEFORE your class comes up ;)

In the instructions for mixing ink in the Spritzer bottle, it says you can use alcohol OR water, and that alcohol will dry faster.  Well, I'm all about "faster", so I mixed up some isopropyl alcohol & ink (I use ispropyl alcohol often in my crafting).  Uh oh.  Here's what happened.  It ran, picked up the blue from my stencil, and looked HORRIBLE.  I had to scrap that banner piece and go back to mixing ink and water.  See the difference:

Left:  Classic Ink in Garden Green mixed with H2O.  Right:  Mixed with isopropyl alcohol 70%.

Alright, so now you know why I have green fingers today!  Stop back tomorrow for step 2 of my "Banner Day".

Happy stampin'!
